Taito has announced that its cute arcade title Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will launch worldwide in November on PS4. In the west, the colorful game will be called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! Sure why not?
The announcement was made in a new video from Taito director Yuichi Toyama and Bubble Bobble 4 Friends director Tsuyoshi Tozaki, with the duo also noting that the original Nintendo Switch edition has achieved an impressive 100000 sales to date. As previously reported, the PS4 port of Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will feature a host of new stages and features that weren't included in the original Switch release. But don't worry, because a free update will be applied to the Switch edition, adding the bonus content.
Despite the visual facelift, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends features all about the classic bubble-jumping platform-jumping action fans have come to expect from the legendary series, as players guide Bub and Bob through 100 single-screen, by defeating baddies, eating goodies, collecting energy-ups and bonuses, and staying one step ahead of the terrifying Baron von Blubba. It's still scary AF.
As a bonus announcement, the video ended with the reveal of a new entry in the Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move series. This 3D version of the classic color matching series is currently in development for Oculus at studio Servios. More details will follow at a later date.
Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is available now on Nintendo Switch and will launch on PS4 in November.
